In this episode, we’re fishing with live bait and see that catching live bait can lead to catching Big Fish from the bank. When the fish are feeding on baitfish, they can be caught on a combination of an artificial lure and live bait. I’ve found that a lipless crankbait with a live shad on the hook can often get a bite while sitting on the bottom. It looks like two dead or wounded laying on the bottom. When moving it ever so slightly, it can trigger a bite from a big fish like a white bass or drum, maybe something even bigger if they are around.
If you’re fishing near live bait, try catching some. Fishing with live bait might just lead to catching big fish even from the bank. Check it out in the video below.
